Progressive Democrats have ruled over Minneapolis for about 50 years. That means they have hired, trained, managed and led two full generations of the police. One of the central, explicit goals of the progressives has been the elimination of racial injustice.
Progressive Democrats had all financial and HR power over the police. They could fire them, dock their pay, force them to take any amount of training, mandate therapy, and on and on. They had access to all arrest and conviction statistics. They ran the local court system and had access to all trial transcripts and legal evidence.
Similarly, they managed the entire legal system and hired, trained, managed and led two full generations of city attorneys and judges.
Either the Democrats are incompetent to the point of hopelessness or they succeeded.
Either the George Floyd death was the result of systemic racism or it was an isolated incident indicative of nothing in the wider population. If the former is true, then the Democrats are racist because they are the system. If the latter is true, than the news media is responsible for the riots because they took a statistical outlier and force-fed it to us as typical of the nation.
Which was it? Racist, incompetent Democrats or an insane news media?
